Default RE: Odd Antenna

Yes, this will probably work after a fashion; you will almost certainly not have the range that is available with a normal 39 to 41 inch antenna though. There are a number of these shortened antennas available and most all claim to be good. It is a simple scientific fact though that range will suffer to a degree. Fortunately, the radio receivers are good enough to give you adequate range even with this shortened antenna. Do do a good range check first if you decide to use it. There is a web site, can't recall the exact address, but if you Google MrRCcam you should find it, that does have results of tests on antenna changes and the effect of lengths.
